I was just reading the magazine printed by the Medical Protection Society on litigation cases, commentaries about legal pitfalls etc while sitting on the toilet bowl last night.
I then read ulgybladie's comment about having a disclaimer and all that jazz.
Geez. What's the fun in blogging if you have to keep watching over your ass like that? I mean honestly the disclaimer is of no use, if you know what lawyers can do. But I totally agree with ulgybaldie that we live in a very litigous society today. Everyone wants a piece of everyone.
I mean someone, maybe a patient may sue for a doctor using him as an example. Or maybe someone may sue cos her daughter read the word that starts with "P" and ends with "S" on the blog and asked mummy what it was. (Not something mummy has).
So the safest path of action is to basically not blog. Which was the original reason why I killed so many of my blogs before :)
I think very soon the MPS will also say something about doctors blogging too. Who knows there might be a category for doctors who blog. "Do you blog?" *tick Yes or No* And the premiums may just be higher.
Thank you very much to all.
